Event

Local sources reported on Tuesday, March 3, that the Taliban will resume attacks against government forces following a peace deal with the US. The Taliban said on Monday, March 2, that talks would not proceed until the release of 5000 Taliban prisoners.

Taliban attacks on security forces are possible in Afghanistan over the near term.

Context

Taliban militants launch attacks on government personnel, security forces, and civilians in Afghanistan on a near-daily basis. Such assaults are, in part, intended to undermine the perceived capacity of Afghan National Security forces (ANSF) - and the Afghan government more broadly - to adequately provide security in the wake of the withdrawal of most US-led NATO forces from the country.

Advice

Individuals in Afghanistan are advised to monitor the situation liaise with their security partner, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.

The security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
